Belfast

A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Explore Belfast's surroundings by going to Royal County Down Golf Club (in Newcastle), Coast Rd (in Larne) and St. Patrick's Cathedral (Roman Catholic) (in Armagh). There's still lots to do: ponder the world of politics at City Hall, contemplate the long history of Crumlin Road Gaol, examine the collection at Ulster Aviation Society, and take in nature's colorful creations at Belfast Botanical Gardens.

You can drive from Omagh to Belfast in 1.5 hours. In July, plan for daily highs up to 67°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
